There Is (Almost) No Chance…Oh, Wait

It’s not the exception that proves the rule; it’s the exception that proves there should be rules.  Michael Schiavo and your ilk, take note

Despite doctors’ advice that he would not live, his wife never gave up hope and took care of him at home.

“He was a living corpse,” she said on TVN24.

“Now he can sit in his wheelchair and we have breakfast and coffee together,” she said.

“I would fly into a rage every time someone would say that people like him should be euthanized, so they don’t suffer,” she told local daily Gazeta Dzialdowska. “I believed Janek would recover,” she said, using an affectionate version of his name.

“This is my great reward for all the care, faith and love,” she told the AP, weeping.

“He remembers everything that was going on around him,” she said. “He talks about it and remembers the wedding of our children. He had fever around the time of the weddings, so he knew something big was taking place.”

In 1988, when Poland was still run by a communist government, Grzebski sustained head injuries as he was attaching two train carriages together. He fell into a coma. Doctors also found cancer in his brain and said he would not live.

  1. Good post.
    Perhaps a better post would be one without a “happy” ending. Our feelings have nothing to do with God’s will. Even if Janek never came around, murdering him is still wrong.
    In these cases it is common to say “never give up hope”. To this I ask “Hope? Hope in what? That he will recover? That hope can be dashed. The hope we never lose is that in Jesus Christ and His meritorious works on our behalf… whether we are in a coma or not.”
